Article excerpt from the American Camping Association on the areas of impact provided to campers by summer camp programs:
"ACA launched its National Camp Impact Study in 2016 to explore the lasting impacts of camp, and what happens at camp to promote outcomes that campers and staff go on to use in school, early jobs, and into adulthood. One of the first steps in this multi-year study was to survey camp alumni between the ages of 18-25 to see what they learned at camp and how they are using what they learned in their lives today. We sent this survey to a sample of camp alumni from ACA accredited camps as well as a sample of emerging adults in the general public—and the findings were nearly the same. The lasting outcomes of camp include relationship skills, independence and responsibility, appreciation for individual differences, and identity development."
"I can not tell you how much Tanner and Tyler absolutely loved it last summer. They talk about it all the time. The friends they made and the memories will last a lifetime. They can’t wait to come back and have even offered to use their Christmas money to help pay for it, so they can come for more weeks."
